Historic Gullah Land Preservation Program

The Lowcountry Gullah Foundation raises funds to assist Hilton Head Island , Duafuski Island and Bluffton Gullah families who are struggling to pay their delinquent Beaufort County taxes. In addition to financial assistance, the Foundation provides necessary solutions to prevent yearly returns to the tax list. Through offering information, resources and support, families establish a solid financial base from a series of targeted programs, which include workshops with general and individualized guidance on economic land opportunities, as well as understanding and untangling title and heirs property issues.

In order to receive funds, the landowner must have a financial stake in saving their land. Participants must commit to certain criteria’s to be admitted to the program because involvement and their success is dependent on participation. Attendance in our financial preparedness program, serves as a “preventative” mechanism to avoid future financial difficulties.
